Did you know that in order for coffee to fully develop its flavor, true professional coffee tasters insist that the cup be preheated before use? It’s true. And a real aficionado would never in a million years accept pre-ground coffee beans over freshly ground. That’s just blasphemy!
Maybe you already knew all this because you’re a real coffee connoisseur, or maybe you just appreciate a good cup of Joe, or maybe you’re just looking for a way to save money on your daily fix – Whatever kind of coffee drinker you are, the Miele CM5100 is your dream espresso machine!
Here’s the simple basics: The Miele CM5100 holds whole coffee & espresso beans, grinds them fresh for each cup, froths milk just like your favorite coffee shop, and whips up incredible espressos, lattes, cappuccinos, macchiatos, and even standard cups of coffee.
An average specialty drink from the major coffee shop chain is about $4.00. Multiply that five days a week for a year and you’re looking at spending over $1,000 a year on coffee! Combine that with the time wasted in long lines and it’s a real wonder more people haven’t figured out how much easier things would be if they simply made their drinks themselves.
How It Works
A common concern about brewing your own specialty drinks is the difficulty involved. Other espresso machines require a PHD in electronics for use. But the CM5100 features an LED screen that literally prompts you step-by-step through making your favorite beverage. Simply select which drink you’d like to make from the menu, whether espresso, latte, cappuccino, macchiato, or just a regular cup of coffee, and the strength you like, and the machine will instruct you through the rest. It’s that easy!
The trick to creating perfect milk based espresso drinks like lattes or cappuccinos is in the perfect froth. Your favorite coffee shop trains their baristas in the proper technique and temperature to steam milk, but the Miele CM5100 does all that for you! The insulated milk flask keeps milk fresh and cold until you’re ready to attach it to the machine. Connect the flask and bam…out comes steamed, light, whipped, frothing milk.
Another frequent complaint regarding espresso machines or those single cup coffee brewers is that you can only make one drink at a time. For many couples, that only adds delay into their morning routine. But the Miele CM5100 features dual spouts making single cups even faster or allowing you to make two beverages side-by-side at once. Just select whether you’re making one cup or two from the LED menu to get started! There are even four programmable cup sizes.
Cleaning the unit is so easy, unlike other espresso machines. The brew unit is simply removed from the machine and easily rinsed out, keeping coffee grinds and milk build-up from doing damage. It’s easier to clean than many standard coffee pots! In addition to the regular rinsing of the brew unit, descaling the system using Miele’s tablets is also as simple as following instructions on the LED prompt menu.
The Miele CM5100 is available in White and Black, designed beautifully to complement your kitchen decor. The sleek stainless steel finishes and clean lines make this one elegant espresso machine.
